Martha's Vineyard... Methodist Camp Meeting...
Item # 649197
August 21, 1867
SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, August 21, 1867 Page 1 provides considerable details concerning the Methodist Camp Meeting at Martha's Vineyard, known as Wesleyan Grove (or Wesleyan Camp Grove). Another article tells of a similar Camp Meeting in Hatfield. Although many of the gingerbread cottages remain, and a summer camp meeting schedule continues into the present, the popularity of such gatherings has greatly diminished over time. Great content surrounded by contemporary reporting.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
This issue would make a wonderful collectible for someone who owns one of the original cottages.
